For some time now I have had problems with POV for ONE of my novels. I don't have this problem with any other project, but this one is driving me nuts! Some parts I have written in First person present tense and others in Third person past. The problem is certain parts work better in first and others work better in third. In first I can use the consciousness of the main character to convey a sense of urgency and humour and really give the story a voice. On the other hand if I write in third I can write more descriptively and give other characters the occassional voice. There are two main characters, but one is only slightly secondary to the main. It is a comedy/crime caper series. I have tried writing parts in the opposing POV, but they don't work as well. I really want to have both, but I know a lot of people will say that's a big 'No-No'. I'm not sure anyone can help me out here, but maybe if I voice this issue and whinge a bit it might come to me. Or maybe some of you have had the same problem. Pulling my hair out here. I guess I'm trying to make the jokes work best. Some work best from a distance as observation and others work best from MC POV. Maybe I have to lose some good writing to decide. That is REALLY effing hard on this one.
